I love lamb -- and DH will NOT try it !! Tonight, he made Bison Burgers for himself, and I had a pound of ground lamb in the freezer ! Only made the burgers, not the sauce -- but the taste was everything I think of with lamb and the proper herbs and spices ! Thanks for posting, Pets !!

These were so easy and so very good! My husband and I both loved them, all of the flavors just melded together so nicely. I used sour cream instead of yogurt. I did do something different and that was to add all of the dressing ingredients to the sour cream...omitting the oil all together. It was wonderful!! I served on a wonderful fluffy garlic naan bread. Can't wait to make it again...thanks!!

On New Years Day I made this for my family & 2 of son's friends who hadn't managed to make it home after NY Eve - all enjoyed it very much, despite lingering hangovers. I served the burgers on lightly char-grilled sour dough with the salad, tzatziki & hummos as accompaniments. Yet another great recipe from Pets - definitely a keeper - thank you.
